A spokesperson for Albany D.A. David Soares reelection campaign says a fundraiser, being hosted in part by an Occupy Albany attorney, does not pose a conflict of interest for Soares.

Doesn't mean it's a good idea.

Soares, please do not eff this up, the last thing we need right now is a Republican DA.

@ B - The county legislature has like 8 Republicans out of 39 representatives, I don't think you need to worry about a Rebuplican DA in Albany county.

I hope you're right Jackers, maybe I've been reading the comments over at Capitol Confidential too much.

When I was a new mom I tried lots of different activities. My two favorites were the public library programming. There are a ton of story hours in the area.
